This year, winter for me was all about molten Choco cupcakes and fluffy soft toys. I have spent the better part of the season at home, munching all I could. Coming to the skincare part, winter is all about rich indulging body lotions to hydrate and soothe the dry layer of the skin. This is the time of the year when the skin requires more moisturization than ever and we are always in a quest for a better lotion for dry skin. Vaseline has been one of the best body lotions ever which we have been using since forever. However, towards the end of the last year it introduced the Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lightly Scented Body Lotion
It has few great variants according to one’s need and preferences. It is aimed to heal and nourish the dry skin, improving the skin’s texture and also gives a light weight feel to the skin. Since, I have already exhausted the bottle now, I feel this is the right time to pen down my thoughts and review of the body lotion. So, scroll down for the detailed review on the Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lightly Scented Lotion.
Product Description: Clinically proven to moisturize to heal very dry skin in 5 days
Best for: dry skin, cracked skin
My Review of Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Body Lotion:
The packaging of the body lotion is pretty similar to the other ranges of Vaseline body Lotions and works pretty well. It comes in an opaque white plastic bottle with a translucent white flip open cap. It is slightly tight compared to others but nothing like you have to wrestle with. I find the overall packaging extremely sturdy and well designed for travelling purposes. It doesn’t spill or cause any mess when you toss it to your handbag. All in all, the body lotion has simple yet well-organized packaging.
The vaseline lotion is slightly thick when matched with other Vaseline lotions. Its white in color and gives a refreshing feeling when applied. The smell of the advanced repair lotion is as good as it can be. It has an artificial creamy smell with a slight refreshing touch to it. Now, this version of body lotion is lightly scented, hence you can imagine how insignificant the scent is. Sensitive skin would love this body lotion as they are not big fans of heavily scented body lotions. It will not hurt the ones with strong nasal senses but the downside is that the body lotion fragrance hardly stays on the skin. I like how the whiff leaves behind a trail of freshness.
Due to its slightly thicker consistency, you actually require a less amount. If you tend to squeeze out excess, it might look greasy initially. While massaging the vaseline advanced body lotion into the skin, it blends in and gets absorbed easily without much trouble. I have never experienced the greasy or sticky feel which the body oils or heavy body butters give and the Vaseline one always felt better than anything else.
Now, coming to the hydration part, it truly does moisture well. My skin feels soft and extremely supple with a wrap of nourishment whenever I apply this. The indulging and hydrating nourishment has the richness of micro droplets of Vaseline Jelly which have the ability to restore from within. These micro droplets are easier to absorb into the skin rather than the raw petroleum jelly. The blend of the ingredients are specifically designed for dry skin and the roughness we go through during winter. The lightly scented body lotion does takes some time to heal the extremely dry areas like elbow, knee, etc. but effectively nurtures with time.
I always make sure to apply this body lotion thoroughly after bathing and my skin does feel soft and alive. It keeps the skin soft for around 7-8hours and after that I feel the need to reapply the body lotion again. After having experienced the body lotion for a month, I can confidently ensure that it does improve the texture of the skin to a large extent.
If gives slightly dewy touch which is excellent for evening. However, if you have normal to oily skin, this isn’t the body lotion for summers for sure. Dry skin can surely continue its usage in summers too and it will help a lot to hydrate their skin. The only complain I have with this vaseline lotion is that it lacks SPF which is a major factor as we don’t want our skin to be exposed to the sunrays.
Price in India: Rs.105 for 100ml
VNA Rating: 4/5

Recommendation: Overall, I loved the Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair. The formula is thick yet so light weight on the skin, absorbs well and heals dry skin along with improving its texture. It has every bit of richness and nourishment the skin requires in winter to protect itself from the harsh cold. It does lack on SPF which really needs to be incorporated by the brand. Apart from that, I would surely recommend the body lotion for winters.
